Well I guess the only explanation is stress...or maybe excitement. I'm not sure how to tell the 2 apart sometimes- because sometimes I think my excitement tends to lead to stress. I've woken up the past several mornings WIDE awake at like 5 am. It's not fun when normally my alarm doesn't go off until 6:40. I've got so much on my mind...today is the big moving day...less than 2 months til the wedding..setting up cable, phone, internet...RSVPing to parties...taking care of bills and shutting off apt utilities..there's lots going on right now! After I get off work at 5:00, I'll be making a quick trip to the apt to load the car. Then we're off to UHaul to rent a truck so I can move all my big things. Then we'll spend the remainder of the night(hopfully not too late) shuffling the rest of the small things. I'm so glad the new house is only about 3 miles away or this would be much more painful! I'm very lucky. I guess the most important things are the 40 + wedding presents I brought back from Starkville last weekend- I absolutely am SO excited about getting all my things out and putting them in their new places. I just keep picturing all the cute decorated rooms in my head.
To some outsiders, they would probably laugh hysterically at how clueless Brad and I are about ANY kind of home-related things my parents are passing off as "common house knowledge". Like yesterday, for example, I'm walking through our yard and say "What do you do about all these tiny sticks when you get ready to mow the yard- don't they tear up a lawnmower?" to which my aunt replied with a laugh, "You pick them all up before you mow!" Oh my gosh...I hope we survive and don't break too many things in the process...Also, like painting rooms- we don't have a clue what you need or where you start...Disconnecting a washer and dryer to move them- not a clue..Keeping hardwood floors clean- not a clue...Hanging big mirrors and pictures-nope...I feel like we're little babies learning to walk-seriously. Anyway- it will be cool to look back and realize how much we've learned and then we'll be able to pass down to our kids all this information that we're clueless about right now! We're growing up!!! and it's FUN!
